    2008 Season Discussion

    Allen Rios https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4709007 took at perfect game all the way to 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th when the Frenzy’s Walter Smith spoiled the perfect game, no hitter and shutout with a round tripper. Rios retired the next batter for the win with an economical 88 pitches and 12 Ks. Closest I’ve come to a perfect game in any league.

    That's a close one! I've never had a pitcher go more than 7 innings perfect.

    Its been a busy season in LBV. Here is what we have done so far..

    Traded From LBV:
    1B: Michael Willson ($2,354,000)
    1B: Brian Klein ($2,054,000)
    SS: Gale Russell ($1,720,000)
    First Round Draft Pick: #3 overall

    Second Round Draft Pick: #27 overall
    Second Round Draft Pick: #45 overall
    Third Round Draft Pick: #51 overall
    Third Round Draft Pick: #69 overall

    Traded To LBV:
    SS: Robert Poteete ($4,475,000)
    P: Peter McQuade ($3,062,000)
    2B: Oliver McGill ($3,841,000)
    Second Round Draft Pick: #40 overall

    Signed:
    CF: Marty Green ($10,000,000) -
    $4,573,000 over base
    P: Carlos Jackson ($6,506,000) - $2,000,000 over base
    P: Larry Moberly ($2,360,000) - $1,000,000 over base

    I wanted to do a long term rebuild but I liked a few infielders on other teams so figured what the hell. Hoping they last until the rest of my staff can fill out. Worst case scenario is that i will be doing another rebuild in a few seasons.

    Awesome job! Hopefully it works out better for you than it has for me. I've been using the trade and free agent market for quite awhile now with great seasonal results but a futile postseason.

    Donald Wanamaker hits for the cycle for the 3rd time in his career in a 7-5 victory. He actually had the cycle after 9 innings but the game went 15.

    For the first time in 23 seasons, Youngstown not only made the playoffs - but won a series, making surprisingly quick work of Walker Park. The shine from that series win wore off quickly, though, with YTown already in a 1-0 hole against Narrows in the conference championship series.

    Youngstown staved off elimination in game 4 of the LCS by belting 8 HRs (a playoff record?) en route to an 11-9 win. Narrows had 5 HRs but it wasn’t enough to get it done and finish a sweep. https://www.csfbl.com/game/boxscore.asp?gameid=41246051

    We moved the fences in this year relying on our pitchers to get ground balls and hope our power guys hit more round trippers. But when the pitchers don’t get it done, the score shows it.

    Clearly, banking on your team to hit 8 HR every game isn't exactly a sound strategy. Narrows promptly booted Youngstown from the playoffs in game five. Still, a nice step forward for Youngstown's young core, which is likely going to get a significant talent boost again next season with some top prospects possibly ready for prime time.

    You definitely are an up and coming team in this league. BTW, Blue Chip Baseball has had a nice run as the #1 league in all of CSFBL in terms of owner activity. That’s a huge feather in the cap for this league!
